The Best Photos From the 2016 Tiny House Jamboree

The Tiny House Jamboree, held August 5-7 2016 at the campus of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, featured 24 speakers, 34 tiny house building companies, and even a wedding (“no tangible gifts,” of course).

I couldn’t make it, but thanks to the magic of social media, can share in a little bit of the action. Here are my favorite Instagram posts from the event.

I put as many photos of the houses as I could—that’s what we all care about, right? Some of them are more functional, some downright awesome. Windowshop along with me. I also included a few photos of people and dogs to give you a taste for the community shenanigans. Enjoy!

I hope they made it!

And more than 50 tiny house builders, too!


Tiny house fans peeked through any available viewpoint.

Another view.


Plenty of people, sure, but it looks like you could squeeze in a few more. Tiny house party!

Love the porthole window—like the side of a ship.


Another nautically-themed tiny house—is that a trend? The roofline evokes waves, and so does the name (the Pequod was the ship in Moby Dick).

One day this will be me. Man, I regret not buying this t-shirt at the #tinyhousejamboree #thj2016 #tinyhouses ?

Always buying funny t-shirts is the key to living a life free of regrets.

Another convert to the Tiny House momement.


Behr Paints sponsored the 2016 Tiny House Jamboree.


I promised you a wedding—here it is! Not a great pic, but they look happy. The couple, BA Norrgard and John Breen, were married on the front steps of the EcoCabins mini chapel. For a honeymoon suite, I guess they had their pick!


So much natural light in this design by Escape Traveler.


The folks at Robinson Residential drove down from Regina, Saskatchewan to show off this design.

It’s Dee’s tiny house. Eeeek! Looking forward to hearing her talk this weekend ?
